I kinda felt like I was spamming yesterday, so here's a couple more belatedly:

The Pokemon Chandelure

Chandelure (I don't have a good title for this one)

Guess who finally figured out a good Pokemon color match for the Nonbinary Pride flag? This person!

Now a shirt!

Gardevoir, Milotic, and Chandelure say that Trans is Beautiful

Trans Is Beautiful Trio

Updated from the first version, which only had Gardevoir and Milotic. (I absolutely cheated on sizing for Chandelure; I'll probably tweak it a bit for the final version that'll go up on TeePublic, but this works better for coloring, IMO.) I always planned to go back and include the Nonbinary Pride colors as soon as I could figure out a good match for them, it just took a bit longer than I expected - plus there was the Redbubble merge, and I was a bit paranoid about that, so. Anyway, finalized TeePublic art is forthcoming! In the mean time, feel free to print and color :Db

Edit: Shirt now available! It turned out really fantastic too, OMG ♥

At last, the culmination of months of sporadic work: The Pokemon Ragtime Show!

Ragtime-themed Totodile

First is Totodile, originally drawn for Pokemon GO's Totodile Community Day.

Ragtime trio Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile

Here's the whole trio together, all ready for the show. It feels like something's missing, though...

Ragtime-themed Pichu

That's it! That's what we need! We need one more Pokemon to make this...

Ragtime pokemon quartet Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, and Pichu

...A Pokemart Quartet! Appearing soon at the radio station in Goldenrod City!


Pichu running for a hug

The Pichu I had to draw first so I could get the hat right :P

I decided to go through and simplify my first batch of Pokemon coloring pages, removing the concentric lines to make them easier to color. I've got a few more to post after this, including the conclusion(?) of the Ragtime Pokemon set, but some of them still need some editing, and I don't want to do an absolutely huge image dump right off the bat.

Here we go! Click on the thumbnails for nice, big, printable versions of the coloring pages.

Woo, got these all finished and scanned!

Ditto meets Mimikyu


What happens when a look-a-like meets a look-a-liker? Instant cute, that's what! Ditto is mid-transformation so it's easier to tell which one it is. I... really couldn't think of any better ideas to display Ditto in all of its Ditto-ness.

Lineart of Cyndaquil, Quilava, and Typhlosion

"Cyndaquil Family Portrait"

Companion piece to the Chikorita Family Portrait, because why not. Starters are popular, and I really liked the way the first one turned out, so I figured I'd continue the theme. Also inspired by next weekend's PoGo Community Day. We'll see how people like it :) (I really did want to do something similar for last month's CD, but it turns out that Beldum is pretty hard to draw!)

Lineart of Cyndaquil with a straw hat and cane

"Hello My Cindi"

Part two of the four(?) part Pokemart Trio set! Another companion piece to a previous Chikorita page. I'm really pleased with how this one turned out; I was really unsure how I was going to pose Cyndaquil before I drew it, but it looks super cute, and a lot more confident than I initially expected. Totodile will be next to round out the set. and then I plan to smoosh them all together into one image for the full effect.

Chikorita in a Mismagius costume


In honor of Halloween, and because it's cute and it rhymes. Also Chikorita is surprisingly fun to draw? No complaints here!

Charmander handing an egg to Murkrow


One of my local Pokemon Go friends is quite fond of my coloring pages, and mentioned that if I ever had any of Charmander, Murkrow, or Ditto, she would love them, since those are her son's favorite Pokemon. I had actually been vaguely looking/hoping for some more non-Community Day/non-Pride shirt coloring page ideas, and promptly took her remark as a prompt ;) I could only manage these two in one drawing, but Ditto will be following up shortly in a pic with Mimikyu (that I still need to scan).

Bidoof leaning on a log with a bi pride symbol

"Bi Doof"

Speaking of Pride shirts, here's Bi Doof Bidoof! I'd been wanting to do something with that pun ever since it occurred to me, lol. I am a bi doof, and I own it. My only regret is that the purple stripe in the bi pride flag is such a dull shade, even compared to the navy blue; I really wish it popped a bit more. Maybe I'll re-color the shirt if I manage to find someplace other than TeePublic to take my stuff.

Gardevoir and Milotic say that Trans is Beautiful

"Trans is Beautiful"

Holy cats, I almost missed this one! Anyway, [personal profile] redsixwing initially suggested Milotic as a subject, since its colors are basically the same as the Trans Pride flag. After some thought, I came up with Gardevoir as one with colors nearly the same as the Genderqueer Pride flag. Since Gardevoir is commonly thought of as a particularly lovely Pokemon, and Milotic is traditionally only available by making a rather shabby looking fish as beautiful as possible, I thought this was a fitting theme for the two of them. I have yet to come up with a Pokemon who is nearly Nonbinary Pride colored, but I'm sure I will sooner or later. (Pachirisu, maybe...? Turn those stripes purple, lean a bit more on the outline...)

Absol, the Disaster Pokemon

In addition to Milotic, [personal profile] redsixwing suggested tying Absol into the popular "Disaster Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Etc" meme. I loved the idea, but hadn't gotten around to incorporating text or anything before the announcement that RedBubble had acquired TeePublic. If I ever find another site to sell through, I'm planning on doing some recolors of Absol for the Disaster Queer shirts.

I had really hoped to have Absol laying down with a paw over its face, as if hiding from the world, but couldn't make the pose turn out right on paper. Still, Petulant!Absol is a pretty good compromise in my opinion.


I think that's all for now. In addition to the upcoming Ditto-and-Mimikyu pic, I've also got a Cyndaquil family portrait I'm working on for November's PoGo Community Day. I've got the rough done already, and really just need to tighten up the lines before I start inking. Hopefully I'll have a new shirts-and-stuff site before I get around to a Totodile family portrait.

More shirts

Three new shirts at my TeePublic account, all with a similar theme:

Trans Is Beautiful, Gardevoir and Milotic

Trans Is Beautiful, Just Milotic

Trans Is Beautiful, Just Gardevoir

I'm probably going to see if I can come up with a Pokemon to recolor for Nonbinary, though it's not currently a priority. (Suggestions still welcome, though!) I'm pretty pleased with how these turned out, either way. Oh, and I'm going to try and get the coloring page version of the duo up after I get some sleep.

Special thanks to [personal profile] redsixwing for suggesting Milotic as a subject!

Lineart of Chikorita, Bayleaf, and Meganium, clustered together as if posing for a picture

"Chikorita Family Portrait"

For lack of a better title :P I didn't exactly go all out looking for an ability or move that fit this one. Anyway, here's the lineart I used to make my first shirt on TeePublic, if anyone wants to color one for themself :3b

Lineart of Chikorita with a hat and cane

"Hello, My Chiko"

Also for lack of a better title 9_9a I made both of these for Chikorita Community Day in Pokemon Go. I've got super vague plans to make the other three Johto starters in similar setups as well, especially the dancing one; I really want to put all three starters together as a team like that for a picture (and probably a shirt). Next one will probably be, "Hello, My Cindi", followed by "Hello, My Toto-diiiile~!", just to help the theme come through ;) I do plan to look for a title more along the lines of my traditional naming scheme once I get all three of them together, though.

Oh, Wish is now a shirt as well, if you care to go check that out :)b I think it looks really great on light blue, myself. "Unaware", the one with Slowbro and the angry Shellder, is next in line, though I'm not entirely sure after that.

*pulls self out of the dregs of December, panting* Okay, I made it!

So I'm officially calling myself "mostly back to normal for me" and have a cute new coloring page to celebrate. Behold!

Cleffa in the moon and stars


I feel like this is a good one for the upcoming new year :3 Also it's just super cute. It was originally going to be Suppi-chan, as a companion to Kero-chan/Guardian of the Sun - then I remembered that Suppi-chan is also sun-themed, but didn't want to erase the pretty darn good moon I'd already drawn, so I decided to use it for someone else. Someday I'll get to Suppi-chan, but it may take a while :P

I may also make a more complicated/detailed version of this with my concentric fill-in lines at some point, but I really liked it as a simple drawing, so I decided to scan a "cleaner" version of it first. This version can hang out with Unaware in the Easier To Color pile. ...Possibly I'll also turn it into an icon; it's got good dimensions for it.

Who likes coloring? 8D Here are all of my coloring pages so far, since AI is over, all in print quality (once you click the pictures).

Butterfree sniffs Floette's flower
"Sweet Scent"

Lineart of Bulbasaur and some cherry blossoms
"Petal Dance"

Spinda plays the tambourine
"Own Tempo"

Slowbro is confused; Shellder is angry

Shellder: It's our anniversary you big pink nitwit! I can't believe you forgot! I have half a mind to unfuse with you! *chew chew chew*
Slowbro: Was there something I was supposed to remember...?

Happy coloring, everyone!

I'm not sure whether I actually want to add more lines to this one or not. (I mean, I did kinda overlook post-evo Shellder's shell spots, but other than that.) I rather like it as is.

Slowbro is confused; Shellder is angry

Shellder: It's our anniversary you big pink nitwit! I can't believe you forgot! I have half a mind to unfuse with you! *chew chew chew*
Slowbro: Was there something I was supposed to remember...?

Current title is Amnesia, but I could just as easily go with Oblivious or Unaware.

As an aside, Shellder/Cloyster is one of the Kanto Pokemon that I'm somewhat disappointed never got an Alolan form. Just like Baby!Kangaskhan, the design is already in the game! It would make at least as much sense for it to exist as not, if not more. Hence: Disappointment. On the day that I'm in charge of the universe, I will finally fix this.

Looks like this exact version of Kero-chan isn't going to be at the con, 'cuz I borrowed Sakura's sigil from online ^^a

For anyone 'round these parts who likes coloring, here's one final print version of Kero-chan. All the other pages are waiting until the con, as will a new version of Kero-chan with an original background.


Lineart of Kero-chan in front of Sakura's magic circle

PS: I apparently didn't communicate effectively to my AI division head that I was drawing the anime-themed coloring pages, which resulted in some worry on his part and on the part of the con exec who oversees our division. Clarifying this is why I ended up eliminating the version with this background, but they both seemed pretty pleased to have otherwise misunderstood.

Lineart of Kero-chan from Cardcaptor Sakura

Kero-chan! I'm quite pleased with how he turned out. Possibly the simplicity has something to do with it. Anyway, I managed to find a good HQ version of Sakura's magic circle, so I should be able to stick him in front of it with very little trouble once I get him scannned.

Butterfree sniffs Floette's flower

As you can see and/or read, I settled on Butterfree and Floette for "Sweet Scent". I may re-do both of their eyes, and I have plans to add ripple-lines to Butterfree's head and body, but otherwise I'd say it's done. I mean, there's some minor tweaks to do (erasing a couple of extra lines in Butterfree's wings mostly), but that's about it. Maybe I'll add some fluffy lights or something, though, IDK.

Spinda plays the tambourine

"Own Tempo". Boy am I pleased with how this one turned out. I was feeling lukewarm about it until I added all the little musical notes in addition to the big ones, but I think they really pull the image together well :) Plus, more stuff to color!

Final version of "Petal Dance"~! Well, final non-print-quality version. I'm tempted to color it in myself and use it as an icon :3 I'm looking forward to finding out what other people think at the next AI meeting tomorrow [er, later today].

I feel the need to post this picture again, because Independence Day.

[Image Description: Crocheted star-spangled mascot-eagle with glasses, a red tie, and a raised eyebrow, holding an American flag]

Now, to find a physical fan mail address for the Colbert Report. (I know, I know, I should really just ask the reference desk at the library, but I keep forgetting! Also, social phobia, even if my mom is a librarian.)

Happy fourth day of July to all, regardless of location! And, er, fifth day of July to some.

So apparently I haven't posted these pics here yet! Let's get that taken care of.

soc_puppet: Words "Creative Process" in purple (Creative Process)
It's done! Or, well, it was done half an hour ago. It then promptly become unfinished for a number of reasons, partly to do with my desire for perfection and the fact that I made the figures too tall so now I need to go in and re-apply the wax so it's about half a cm lower to keep the glass from distorting their heads, but mostly because hot glue really doesn't hold that well to wax. Don't get me wrong, there were totally advantages to that in the setup process, but there's definitely something to be said for the toothpick application method.

Anywho, pics! Ship In A Bottle )

Edit: Second place, w00t!

Just a few this time; most of my recent work has been to re-stock merchandise at either my Etsy store or White Rabbit.

Felix the Cat )

Winter Storm Dragon )

And that brings this picdump to a close. Tune in next time, when I'll post pics of - I'm not entirely sure just now. Well, tune in next time to find out what I'll post pics of, then.

Black Opal Dragon )

In addition to the black opal dragon, I added another two plain-colored griffins to my Etsy store, one in black and one in brown. I figured I'd skip pics of them for now, though :P With any luck, I'll be adding my Tetris blanket there sometime soon as well.

Quick reminder: I've got offers up at [profile] fandomaid to raise money for Superstorm Sandy relief. My customary offer is up here; I'm also making Dr. Hooves available in the auction.

Edit: Now with Etsy links! (Good grief, self...)

I've had this image in my head for a while, and the other day I decided I'd finally get to work getting it out of my head.

Cut for large image )

There's a lot I have to say about this image, but I'm going to put that under a separate cut, so people who like to open things separately with the nifty little DW side-arrow thing can do so. Especially if they have bandwidth concerns.

Image thought process )

And, uh, that's all I have to say about this pic, I think. Er. I hope you like it?

Getting very belatedly back to my AnimeIowa 2012 Con Report, here's a set of pictures of the lanterns I painted for the Special Surprise on Friday night.

Image heavy! )

Saturday and Sunday to come eventually, hopefully. Also more pictures, possibly from 2011 and 2010 as well. (Apparently the trick for me is to just skip the photoshoot pics; too many to sort through and label =_= Maybe I'll just zip 'em up, especially if I can figure out how to do a mass re-size.)
soc_puppet: Drawing of a smiling fish skeleton (Fishbone)
Because I have a pig with wings in this set, that's why. Alternately it's Flashback version, since a lot of this stuff go back to stuff I've mentioned or even made before.

This also isn't my best set of photos from a technical standpoint, but whatever, I'll retake stuff later if I have to. Photographing is done for today. I've re-taken all the pictures, and now they look much better, yay! Also, I have finally started making everything the same height instead of the same width. Why the editing program I use "remembers" the previous measurement I used for width rather than height I'm sure I'll never know.

Pigwings )

Dolphin 2.0 )

Bottled Octopus )

Pikachu Lightbulb )

And that's all for now! Tigerstripe griffin almost made it, but its stripes aren't finished yet. Sigh. Maybe next time - hopefully I'll have a Vodka Mutini then as well ::3
